Well done!
What was your route from adv to YM? Assume it's power or is in sail?
Cheers

Well done.

I have just finished Yachtmaster Theory last week up in Ballachulish in preparation for Powerboat Advanced in January, hopefully then on to Day Skipper Practical, some more miles and then YM Offshore before the end of the year.

It's well worth it mate. A good ticket to have

Hi Mark,

I'm not sure why you'd want to do Day Skipper practical after Advanced Powerboat. You should have your theory up to Coastal Skipper level before your Advanced course so why not do Coastal Practical, or even direct to YM Offshore? Unless you're switching codes and want to get some time/miles in a different type of boat, or you don't have the pre-requisite miles to go for a higher level course yet, Day Skipper feels like it could be a step backwards for you.

I was thinking that way to get some bigger boat experience, displacement hulls etc. Currently I'm limited to experience in ribs rather than bigger stuff. My intermediate instructor was confident that with yachtmaster theory done my boat handling was sufficient to do the advanced course and test.
